Philips Brilliance 170P

The screen back ground is slightly grainey and the color seperation looks like digital stepping. Sort of looks like the pixel rate is not set correctly.
Any ideas?

Re: Philips Brilliance 170P

Resolution should be 1280x1024.
Colours 16 bit.
Motherboard drivers installed.
Redo the graphics driver installation by completely removing the current one, and then use the install-CD for the graphics card. The installation could take place while you are in VGA-mode - press F8 during first BIOS-screen - to avoid disturbance.

Philips Brilliance 200 W 6 Flat Screen Monitor blacks out

sounds like the monitor is burning out or color is out of alignment could be result of burning out and no it's not worth repairing it. had one guy repair a montior a while back, could be looking at easy 200 to 400 bucks repair. not worth it. much cheaper to buy.

I have a philips brilliance 200w6 lcd moniter that has no sign of power, i have checked all and replaced all capacitors, got power going though all the boards in the back but still no sign of power, no led...

scle193, What happened that you needed to replace electrolytic capacitors? Why ??? Still no sign of power??? Did you pay attention to polarity when replacing the capacitors? Did you document you work with a digital camara to make sure that you could put it back together without having any leftover parts or unconnected cables. Have you measured the dc voltages at the output of the SMPS? Have you checked any and /or all onboard mounted FUSES?? What was the original complaint you had with this monitor? Have you tried to get a service manual or schematic from Philips? Get back to me with info
if you can. lmistyrel bye for now. louie12fix

nice anecdote, fixing things from far is not easy, a t.v.-technician right in front of the actual screen could tell more- but they don't come for free, alas. hope that people's idea about problem solving lead up to you fixing a problem yourself - hey this here is for free - to sort wxperts, one needs feedback! thx alot

You need to install the video drivers for your computer before you can get your resolution and colors back. Go to your computer or motherboard or video card manufacturer's website and download the vista drivers for it and install.
